Bob Dylan’s enduring classic comes to life with over 170 animal illustrations & CD with Dylan’s original recording

What do children love to read about? Animals! In Man Gave Names to All the Animals children will discover the furry, snorting, slithering animals of Bob Dylan’s classic song of the same name. Ever since its release on his epochal album Slow Train Coming, this gospel-influenced song with a rhythmic beat has captivated young and old alike for over three decades. Now a new generation can appreciate it as a story in an enchanting book adaptation, brimming with award-winning artist and naturalist Jim Arnosky’s brilliant illustrations that capture the natural world and the irrepressible humor of Dylan’s lyrics.

Whether singing or reading aloud, children will delight in Arnosky’s more-than 170 spectacular creatures including butterflies, gorillas, cheetahs, iguanas, ibexes, walruses and more! A pictorial hide-and-seek on every page, readers can visit www.jimarnosky.com to see if they’ve discovered every wild creature featured in the artist’s panoramic illustrations.

“From the first time I heard it, the lyrics created pictures in my mind of a land of primeval beauty, where the sky and earth were new, where plants first grew, and the animals knew no fear,” said Jim. “I thought this vision would make a dream of a book, and I asked for Bob Dylan’s permission to make this dream come true. Happily, he said yes.”

Dylan’s legion of fans will treasure Man Gave Names to All the Animals and the opportunity to share his music and lyrics with the children in their lives.
